Lenexa calling public hearing for TIF redevelopment plan near K-10 and Ridgeview

The Lenexa City Council on Tuesday voted 7-0 to call for a public hearing to consider approving Redevelopment Project Plan 6 in the Ridgeview Mining TIF District. Councilmember Tom Nolte recused himself, citing a conflict of interest.

Located on 15 acres at the northeast corner of K-10 Highway and Ridgeview Road, Ten Ridge Project consists of a mixed-use project with about 80,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and commercial uses in eight buildings, as well as a 90-room hotel.

The TIF increment generated from the project area would reimburse the developer up to $8 million in TIF eligible costs after substantial completion of construction. The city would also be eligible to receive up to $8 million in TIF eligible costs for public improvements within the Ridgeview Mining TIF District.
